McCormack American Eagle 350 Vs. Honda 350-CL

Take on the competition. Just for fun, we put our McCormack Eagle Cheeta 350 up against the Honda 350CL 350 CL. Here are some of the results:

vintage ad available here.

We’re two-cycle. They’re 4. We produce 2.1 hp per cube. They produce 1.6. Hmmm.

Our 338 cc air-cooled engine develops 42 brake hp at 8000 rpms. The Honda 350-CL with 325 cc’s revs a little higher with 33 hp at 9500 rpms.

Horsepower to weight ratio. A big point, right? Ours is 7.85 lbs per horse. The Honda works a little harder with 10.45 lbs per horse.

Now you have an idea why we take the SS1/4 in a hair over 13 secs. They come in just under 16 secs. We top end at 110+. They, at 96+.

Honda 350 is a good machine. Ours? Well, the facts speak for themselves.

We welcome competition. Hope they welcome us.
